This morning began our open-ended road trip extravaganza. After a sad- nay, heart-wrenching- good-bye to Daddy, I buckled the kids in the van and immediately learned my first road trip lesson:
do NOT play Pinocchio as a distraction for children missing their Daddy.
And I quote, “Papa! Papa! Please come back. I promise I’ll be good. Don’t go!”
Um, thanks Pinocchio. Keep an eye out for a bill to cover their counseling for psychological damage at formative ages.
Second road trip lesson learned ten miles down the road: kids prone to car-sickness will have heightened symptoms if watching a movie while driving.
Hey, live and learn (or some other cliche phrase that is supposed to add insight.)
I got this!
I got this?
I’m torn on which form of punctuation most accurately depicts how I feel about day 1 on the road.
You are a very brave momma!
Exclamation point definitely. In the most positive way! Just not three exclamation points!!! That’s definitely not zen.
You’ve got this Tommi! Your pictures are just so cute. I can wait to hear about stop number 1!=
Thanks Katherine! Yeah, there’s something about big eyes and fat cheeks that are rather irresistible in little kids. And yes, I think you’ll particularly enjoy the pictures from our first stop 🙂
What a brave Mom. or “Does she know what she is getting into?”
Prayers for your travel. Always count red cars, blue cars, etc.
Love you through all this. Mama Joan
Thank you Momma Joan! We cannot wait to see you! Rest up now 🙂
I’m hoping you have adventures in odyssey!!
…which we are listening to on the drive, Nanci 🙂
